    People searching for a personal injury solicitor in Burray – causes of car accidents

    One of the reasons why people have to hunt for a personal injury solicitor in Burray is because a driver was driving too close behind them. When you position your car too close to the vehicle in front you do not give yourself enough time to brake if they slow down or stop suddenly.  Adequate stopping distance is vital in preventing accidents.

    Stopping distance is made up of the distance that you cover whilst you are thinking and reacting to the hazard in the road ahead and the braking distance which is the distance that you cover after applying your brakes but before you come to a standstill.

    If your reactions are quick then your reaction distance will be shorter – people who have consumed alcohol have longer reaction distances. The braking distance will be influenced by how good your brakes and tyres are and how slippery the road surface is.

    One of the classic injuries suffered by people hunting for a personal injury solicitor in Burray is the ‘rear-end shunt’ and this can easily be caused by someone driving too close behind you. If you stop suddenly, they simply drive into the back of you because they have not had enough time to slow down. In some cases they did not even try and slow down because they had not noticed that you had stopped.

    The ‘rear end shunt’ typically causes a neck injury called whiplash. This is when the soft tissues of the neck (ligaments and muscles) become stretched beyond what they can usually take. The tissues are damaged, become inflamed and cannot work as well as they normally do. The symptoms can be:

    • Neck pain
    • Neck stiffness
    • Loss of movement
    • Headaches
    • Pins and needles in the arms
